Challenges…….what are they ? I kept on thinking as i saw many new things entering my life, and after going through a lot of things that went by and as i stood in a new view of clarity.
When we bring out the word “Challenge” usually its taken as something which is tough, something for which you need to put on your game face on and ram it with everything you have….BAM! So it was for me too a while ago, as i heard the word “Challenge” i tightened myself up and words came to my mind “Its Showtime!” or “Im gonna take this down!”
But i realized its not always so.
Recently, since i have been back to my normal, busy and at times really exhausting schedule, i felt things around me taking me to a wonderful ride. As things changed, because i was off for a month and before this break i had, my schedule was different and this what came forward to me being relatively new, i am all excited about it, yet, as it has started and i am implementing it. At times i’ve seen people say, “We don’t get time”….i’ve always wanted to say them, my friend, “We all have the same time, its what we do in that much amount of time and how we do it really matters. One thing i learnt in life, the moment you stop giving excuses, Your Life will go for an amazing change!
I saw myself falling into this new time constraint, things started tightening around, many many things to handle together, although i efficiently did a lot of things and had started to juggle some and ignore some, and my focus went out of track for a short while….wham!!! A new Challenge……..Take a break! STOP! i had to say to myself.
What’s going on ??? What i realized was that i had to start focusing more on myself rather than the things i’ve gotta do, the more i build up and grow myself, the more the things i do will be done in a much better manner, i had to build a foundation, i had to be efficient, sharp, awesome, time bound, tactical, precise and strong. Focusing on each of the qualities one by one wasn’t the trick, i had to be clear, i had to be myself. Things happen in life due to which you get clouded, in these times, hold on to what you are and your true capabilities, the cloud passes away, always.
I saw that i didn’t have to fight the Challenge and win against it, but i had to flow with it. A wise man once said, surrendering at times is also the strongest thing to do. We can’t fight time or stop it, we must all flow with it, and make the best of what we have with us.
Life presents us with challenges at many many different levels, the amazing thing about challenges is that they are different, and each time when we face those different challenges we are in a different state of mind. They become like a stepping stone for growth for us. It puts us into this new state of mind/consciousness. Presenting us with moments of transformation & realization. Ways and ideas to go around, its like a new state of our minds, where our creativity and the potentials of our minds are released in this new way as new thoughts & ideas start pouring in.
What i learn’t after a few failures was that always Winning the Challenge isn’t important, what matters is how you dealt with it, what you learnt from it and how it helped you to grow, how it helped you to become better, bring out your true self, take you to another level, make your realize your true potential.
That’s the true meaning of Overcoming a Challenge.
What surprised me is the thought that some people are afraid of challenges, they dwell in this fear and limit their life to an extent where everything they are is undermined and so are they, due to which they are unable to harness the best out of themselves. That’s the worst thing to do, don’t ever do that, each Challenge is beautiful and has something to teach.
Some challenges might put you in a state of difficulty, or in a tight spot. But its during those times that focusing on yourself and the situation around you really matters, there’s always a way out, what matters is the Will. If there isn’t a way, then make one, but do your best, so that even if God forbid failure touches you, it will actually be a victory for you, you’ll know your true capacity, the limitlessness and the capabilities that you have.
They can be expected or unexpected, what matters is how we deal with those challenges, they can arise from anywhere, At work, with family, in our daily lives for eg. having problems with your vehicle and you’ve gotta make it somewhere and many of them.
Challenges are like an unknown puzzle, each time when we find a new piece and join it with the puzzle of our life, something new is revealed to us, something which we hadn’t seen, felt or understood before. Challenges not only create new perceptions till they last, but they also give us the idea to look through those perceptions later.
In all, Challenges are a phase in our lives, they push us to our maximum. They are beautiful as they bring out the best in us, so go on, never be afraid of Challenge, give it your best and all that you have, have a lot of fun in the process & most of all Enjoy :D!
